  1. They're testing Orion right now.

  2. I would like to point out one thing. Most people, and I mean like 95% of people, don't go to Cedar Point for the flat rides or the shows. They go for the coasters. Even the general public knows that Cedar Point is roller coaster paradise and that if you go, you better be going for the coasters. Plus, CP is known to open only record breaking attractions. Name one coaster at CP that isn't a family coaster that didn't break a record when it opened. It just makes perfect sense for CP to get this. If they are going to get a record breaker, they are either going for steepest or most inversions. I could see both to be honest.

  3. Here's my first concept of a Gerstlauer infinity for Cedar Point. This would be located in Frontiertown and would take up a combined land of the antique cars and (even though unlikely to be removed) Cedar Creek Mine Ride. This coaster would feature 15 inversions and would feature a launch at the beginning of the ride and a vertical lift hill inside a tall mineshaft tower and would dive out of it under the pathway into the CCMR area.

  4. Hmm- if I had to guess, I would say...Cedar Point. They were rumored to get a new coaster in 2021, but it was supposedly delayed due to COVID, and this thing is supposed to be big and break records- Cedar Point loves that stuff. HangTime at Knott's Berry Farm was apparently very well received in 2018, so it is possible that Cedar Fair now wants a even bigger and badder version for their flagship park. Sorta repeating what happened with Xcelerator and Top Thrill Dragster, in a way. As for what record I expect to be broken: # of inversions, most likely. We are probably looking at a ride with 14+. As for where in the park I'd see this, survey markers were seen around the Antique Cars in Frontier Town in 2020. Hence the "space" challenge that was mentioned by Gerstlauer. Though if this new ride is in Frontier Town, that really isn't gonna help draw the crowds away from Maverick and Steel Vengeance since the new ride will be in the same section as them, so now there will be 3 rides with crazy long lines (unless the Gerstlauer ends up having great capacity but even then it probably will have long lines) in Frontier Town. Plus, a big new ride at Cedar Point? That would get Gerstlauer noticed. If not Cedar Fair, I could see Sea World possibly adding this to one of their parks since they are on a coaster-buying spree. Or maybe Herschend for Dollywood or Silver Dollar City. I don't see Six Flags buying such a large and expensive coaster, same goes for most of the small non chain parks as well. Very slim chance this goes to KI- I don't see us getting anything until 2023 at earliest. If this does end up going to KI this soon somehow, then it is likely gonna be The Vortex replacement- though opening a new coaster on a anniversary year seems unlikely, especially since CP didn't do that for their 150th.

  9. Due to members requests, you may have noticed by now that we have added a new Kings Island History forum. I have went back through the Kings Island Forum to the start of 2014 and moved any thread that was about KI history. I hope this helps keep all of the awesome history of our favorite park a little more organized.
